With its motor racing-inspired design, this Tag Heuer MONACO 24 Calibre 36 replica watch puts the spirit of “Le Mans” on your wrist and re-interprets the legendary blue dial Steve McQueen wore in the “Le Mans” movie.The “Advanced Dynamic Absorber” system protects the movement against jolts and vibrations.The unique, wide open sapphire case back shows the exceptional oscillating mass resembling a racing wheel and the famous C.O.S.C. Calibre 36 beating at 36,000 beats per hour.As a finishing touch, the oversized “24” at 12 pays tribute to “Le Mans”.
The key design feature of the Monaco Twenty Four chronograph is the floating dial and movement, which are suspended in the case and held in place by four “shock absorbers”. Despite the design being four years old, it’s still one of the most distinctive replica watches on the market today…instantly a Monaco, but certainly not something from the past.
Like the other models, the 2013 Monaco has a stainless steel case dominated by a large sapphire crystal that warps around the sides of the case. The case diameter of 40.5mm may not seem that daunting (the Calibre 12 Monaco has a diameter of 39mm), but it’s the depth of the case that prospective buyers should be aware of- as seen below. The leather strap is re-enforced where it joins the lugs, ensuring that the replica watch doesn’t feel too top-heavy.
BLUE MONACO. The irresistible boldness and unconventional beauty of the TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Caliber 36 chronograph celebrates the legacy of Steve McQueen from the “Le Mans” movie (1971) in the most sophisticated way.
Sustained in the “Advanced Dynamic Absorber” casing system that protects from jolts and vibrations, the legendary blue dial is tastefully reinterpreted to showcase the intelligent features of the prominent caliber, beating at 36,000 beats per hour. A more fascinating view can be enjoyed from the wide open sapphire caseback, where the exceptional oscillating mass that resembles a racing wheel bares it all. One finishing touch to this 40.55mm limited piece replica watch is the oversized “24” number at twelve o’clock, as an homage to the inspirational movie.
